About Alex Malin

About Alex 2We Are Living in Challenging Times

Life is hard. It can feel stressful, overwhelming, and just downright painful.

It’s like you have this vision of the life you want to live, but something keeps getting in your way. You have ambition and goals, but your setbacks keep bringing you right back to square one. You restart and restart again, hoping that tomorrow will be different.

But obstacle after obstacle gets in your way, and eventually, it feels like you’re just too tired even to try. The feelings of loneliness and sadness creep in, and the walls seem to be closing in on you.

There has to be something more, right? “Why do other people seem to be so happy and carefree? What’s wrong with me?

Everyone Has the Ability to Heal and Thrive

We all go through challenges, periods of intense stress, and feelings of insecurity.

Sometimes, you need someone with the tools to help you build healthy coping skills to support you through difficult times.

You are more than capable of rediscovering your joy. And together, we can create reparative and healing experiences that will help you connect to the life you want to live.

Build an Authentic Life

I understand heartache, pain, and disappointment. I also understand overcoming, learning to love yourself, and growth. It takes honesty to admit there is a problem and courage to address it. It also takes discipline and strength to do the work to resolve the issue.

As a therapist, I appreciate the uniqueness of each client, and my goal is to create a safe space where you can be your true, genuine self.

When you’re in the room with me, you will experience compassion and collaboration that will open the door for you to feel seen, heard, and understood. We will explore new strategies and techniques to help you reach your goals and live a happier, healthier, more fulfilling life.

Whatever your current struggle is, I am here to support you in creating the lasting change you want and need.

More About Me

I received my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Arizona and my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University.

I completed my traineeship at Jewish Family and Children’s Services of Long Beach and West Orange County, where I gained extensive experience treating varying issues among individuals, couples, and children. Additionally, I have experience working with adolescents in residential treatment centers and community mental health settings.

When I’m not working, my greatest joy is being with my wife and daughter and running around the dog park with my Labrador Retriever. Additionally, I love spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy sports, reading, and watching movies.

While I see many types of clients, here are a few areas I specialize in: Depression and Anxiety, Men’s Issues, High-Conflict Couples, Trauma, Identity and Self-Esteem, Relationships and Boundaries, Life Transitions, and Teen Therapy.
